Whether stuffing suitcases with flip-flops or ski boots, the chic set is packing up and heading out this holiday season.


Destination: "Uruguay with my three daughters and son."
Fashion staples: "Very little. Brazilian flip-flops in white and red, Melissa Odabash shorts to go with my bathing suit, my massive collection of bikinis and some Muriel Brandolini cover-ups."
Activities: "José Ignacio is a peninsula with beaches on either side, so the big debate is, which side are we going to today? You wake up and look at the wind and decide which beach is less windy and then go there. We windsurf and bodysurf."
Hot spots: "Around 4 or 5 o'clock everyone gets ‘submarines' — hot chocolate with vanilla ice cream and more melted chocolate — at La Huella. All the kids go dune-surfing, and the parents sit and drink submarines or smoke cigarettes. Then you don't go to dinner until 11."
Most looking forward to: "Hanging out with my kids because there's no program. The pace is different. There's a lot going on, a lot of action, but days just move more slowly."

Destination: "For the first time in 15 years, taking a break from Mustique and going to Careyes, Mexico."
Fashion staples: "Lots of Havaianas, Allegra Hicks caftans, bikinis, Modo sunglasses and a black-and-white Michael Kors sundress."
Activities: "We'll hang on the beach, by the pool, eat quesadillas and guacamole, drink margaritas — just chill with our sons and our friends. Also some tennis, polo (playing — not only spectating!) and swims."
Hot spots: "Favorite spots are Playa Rosa beach, the restaurant by the beach (also called Playa Rosa). Not really much else there…which I love.
Most looking forward to: "No schedule and no routine — spontaneous living for a change."

Destination: "I am traveling with my boyfriend, family and friends to Florida to get some fun in the sun — Miami or West Palm Beach. I haven't decided yet."
Beauty staples: Chanel No.5, Acqua Di Parma and Sephora Super Supreme Body Butter "packed in my WEK1933 bag."
Activities: "Relaxing, reading and writing and just enjoying time with my loved ones."
Hot spots: "Of course, the beach."
Travel tip: "Pack light and simple and drink lots of water."
